Port Clinton Lady Redskin bowlers traveled to the Palace Bowling Center in Columbus Saturday for the Ohio High School Invitational Kick-off Tournament. They started with team games of 717-833-807 and added 165-192 in baker for a 2714 total which made the first cut in 16th place out of 32 teams.
They played leading qualifier Centerville and won the first two in the best three out of five baker games to go up 2-0. They couldn’t get to three, dropping the last baker game by 13 pins to lose 2-3 and finish 16th in the event.
“They are a veteran D1 team and we gave them all they wanted going down to the last two frames before they beat us,” said Coach Bob Black. “We just had too many open frames and beat ourselves. Overall I was proud of our girls as we fought back from an opening 717 team game to average about 810 for the tournament. If we are to become the team they want to be we have to make more consistent strike and spare shots. We certainly weren’t outclassed.”
